Sony/ATV has confirmed that it has signed Beyonce to one of those publishing deals everyone is talking about these days. She, by the way, follows that Jon Platt in jumping over from Warner Chappell, the company he left last year to become CEO of the Sony-owned songs business.

“I am excited for what’s to come with my continued partnership with Jon Platt in his new leadership role at Sony/ATV”, says Beyonce in a statement. “Jon’s the executive who understands the creative mindset and continues to be both an advocate and protector. It has been an honour working with Jon from the start of my career”.

Platt adds: “Beyond all of her well-deserved accolades and accomplishments, Beyonce is simply one of the most driven and impactful talents I know. I’ve had the privilege of making incredible music with her throughout her career and she continues to set the bar for creative expression in all forms. Beyonce inspires generations with her songs and I am honoured to reunite with her at Sony/ATV”.

Everyone’s just so bloody honoured. The new deal covers Beyonce’s entire catalogue from top to toe all around the world. Rihanna also made a similar move to follow Platt from Warner to Sony last year.
